The Life of an Indoor Cat

.

Our cat’s as big as a cougar
but not so lithe

She scans for prey through windows
to her genes’ delight

Purina’s her grub, poor thing,
she would rather mice

She wolf’s her dish and her mate’s
(she is not polite)

Never runs through the grass after finches
keeping her figure light

Would she rather be free in a field or the road?
We think she might

But we keep her safe inside so she won’t meet the wheels
of big rig’s bite
